SFPP 94: Getting To Where You Want To Go With Casi Yost

On today's episode, we get the opportunity to chat with a photographer who is in the trenches!

Casi Yost is a wedding photographer + educator based out of McMinnville Oregon. She is a passionate advocate for the community over competition movement and hands-on education. In addition to being a wedding photographer, Casi co-founded the Beyond Workshop to help women establish their foot in the industry.

However, it wasn’t long ago that Casi was trying to decide whether or not full-time photography was still in her cards.

This is why I’m excited to talk with Casi because, for many of us, the struggle is real.

We know where we want to be, but we just may not know how to get there.

In today's episode, Casi and I discuss how she closed the gap on where she wanted to be vs. where she currently was.
